Morris Katz, the “King of Schlock Art”, has died.

Morris (Moshe) Katz has died after suffering a stroke at his home in Manhattan, New York. He was 78-years-old.

Known for his painting technique of using a palette knife wrapped in      toilet paper in lieu of a conventional paintbrush, this unconventional  artist holds two Guinness World Records; one for “world’s fastest  painter” and the other for “world’s most prolific artist.”

 

Katz is also listed in “Ripley’s Believe it or Not” as as a human oddity  for his ability to paint full works of art in less than five minutes using  his “Instant Art Method.”
